speedo not working after SYE install

Ive done a few SYE installs on NP231's and haven't had any issues. This last one I did and the speedo is not working. Used the OE gear on the speedo assembly. I installed it with the number range containing the gearís tooth count aimed down like explained in this write up http://jeepin.com/features/speedogear

Anybody have any other explanation for this issue? I confirmed that I plugged the speedo back in and I also pulled the assembly back out and made sure the gear didn't get eaten up from improper installation.

You remembered to put the drive gear on the shaft, correct? Try turning it 180, align the numbers with the other leg of the hold down. I think I did the same thing on one of the ones I did.

Yes, the plastic gear on the end of the SYE shaft that drives the speedo? Im gonna try to spin the speedo assembly a different way and see what happens. Just didn't want to install it wrong and have it mess the gear up. To my understanding, it wont be able to be installed all the way into the case before that happens.
